...Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS) long range
probabilistic outlook for the Aransas River Basin in South Texas...
The Corpus Christi Texas National Weather Service office has
implemented advanced hydrologic prediction service (ahps) for
the Aransas River Basin in South Texas. AHPS enables the
National Weather Service to provide long-range probabilistic
outlooks. This service is also available on the internet.
In the table below...The 90 through 10 percent columns indicate the
chance the river could rise above the listed stage levels in the
next 90 days. Example: The Aransas River at Skidmore has a
flood stage of 13 feet. There is a 50 percent chance the Skidmore
forecast point will rise above 5.8 feet during the next 90 days.

This long-range probabilistic outlook contains numbers that are
calculated using multiple scenarios from 50 years of historical
climatological and stream flow data. These numbers also take
into account current conditions of the river and soil moisture.
